Energy Innovation’s Energy Policy Simulator lets you model over three dozen different energy policies—from fuel economy standards to extending the life of existing nuclear to rice cultivation measures—to see how much they will cost and what impact they will have on greenhouse gas emissions. Use the simulator to see how the different policies work (and work together). If you aren’t clear on exactly what a particular policy is, there are built-in explanations to inform your choices. The dropdown menu at the top allows you to select from various policy scenarios, including business as usual and Clean Power Plan. As you adjust your policies, you can choose to see output measured with different metrics, including over a range of financial, emissions, and consumption changes. And once you have something you like, you can share your scenario, which will likely make this simulator a new toy for many in the energy world.
